In 2007, four RCMP officers responded to a disturbance call at Vancouver International Airport which resulted in the tragic death of Polish traveller Robert Dziekanski. While the officers did absolutely nothing wrong in their response, the RCMP allowed the YVR 4 to be prosecuted for perjury.
This week, there were two big developments. One of the YVR 4 members Kwesi Millington reached a settlement with the RCMP, proving the police force has been wrong throughout this process. Further, the BC government appointed a central figure of the YVR incident Wayne Rideout as BC’s Director of Police Services.
